Racism, homophobia, islamophobia, and other issues are very prevalent in today’s time. But what happens when a popular web series promotes any of this ideology by going the fun route. Well, the answer to this is that it’s totally unacceptable. A video has gone viral on social media from Netflix’s Little Things which sees the star cast making a racist joke using South superstar Dhanush as the reference. Yus, we are not kidding. The clip sees a man mocking his friend’s appearance and compares him to actor Dhanush. Maaran: Dhanush’s Intense First Look From D43 Revealed on His Birthday (View Pic).
However, the scene does not end there, as the guy further adds that his friend would make Dhanush look like a supermodel. Adding to it, the saddening part is that the racist joke is enjoyed by all the friends in the scene. But this particular scene has not gone down well with Dhanush’s fans. They have slammed it on Twitter. FYI, the scene is from season 1 episode 3 of the web series which stars Dhruv Sehgal and Mithila Palkar as leads. Check out netizens’ reactions below.

This kind of pathetic mindset is everywhere like an actor should have an attractive body, fair skin. Look at his acting dude. He is the best!

Well, even if the video is old and has gone viral right now, we do not understand how can a streaming giant promote racism with an aim to serve entertainment. It’s a long fight it seems as we all know how physical appearance and white skin matter the most to many. Stay tuned!
